Six year anniversary of a contractor killed in Afghanistan
This week will mark the 6th anniversary of the death of Ron "Zimsmoochie" Zimmerman whom I was proud to call a classmate and a friend.
Southwest Asia: US Counter-Drug Contractor Killed as Afghan Fighting Intensifies
His armored vehicle was struck by a VBIED more specifically an Explosively Formed Projectile which went through the door where he was seated. This incident occured less than 45 days after arriving in the country.
Ron was from Indiana and left behind a wife and three young kids.
Whether you support the war, the President, Contractors or anything else I would ask that you take a moment to remember him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
